Back in 1994, our founders decided to kick up their heels and invite the LGBTQ community to party on the sands of South Beach. More than twenty years later, that one night has become an iconic six-day celebration of people – all kinds of people from all over the globe – who come together to learn, live, love, laugh and forge lifelong relationships.
Our underlying purpose is serious. We are committed to supporting forward- moving change for the LGBTQ community both locally and nationally. Winter Party Festival is a fund and consciousness-raising event with proceeds going to South Florida organizations supporting the LGBTQ community and the National LGBTQ Task Force.
Our method is part genius and part magic. We host the most amazing mix of people, music, entertainment and top international DJ talent to ever come together in one place. We do so in world-class venues of an exhilarating destination – Miami Beach.
With over 12,500 guests from around the world attending six days of events, the scale of Winter Party Festival is inspiring. But the sense of welcome is warmly personal and sincere. Regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, age, race, ethnicity or belief, anyone and everyone is made to feel comfortable and at home. Winter Party Festival is that place where for one week, the world is full of acceptance and love. And we can take a deep breath of the ocean air and clear our heads. Fill our hearts. Engage our minds. Kick up our heels. And return to everyday life happier, stronger, wiser, and ready to ignite the world.
